'Summercourses' for 2 agro university teacher groups from China
HollandDoor facilitated during past summer 2 trainings for staff and teachers of Henan Agricultural University (HAU) and Inner Mongolia Agricultural University (IMAU), both from China. The trainings were requested by Stichting Agricultural Exchange Union of China-Europe (Foundation EUC). 
For most of the trainees it was the first time to stay in The Netherlands, Europe or even outside China. Quite an experience!! 
For both groups tailor-made trainings were developed with subjects such as Agriculture & Economic Development in The Netherlands, Agro global supply chain management, Food safety and traceability systems, Marketing of perishables & cooperative models and Teaching strategies.
